"It does not surprise me to see that many youngsters cannot (yet) tell the difference between Greg Howe and some run-of-the-mill shredder.
Just so you know where I am coming from: I am not a metalhead. Many guitarists are very good, I am sure, but I don't listen to their music because they bore me. Most of them never quite seem to manage to leave teentown.I know the stuff very well. Been there, done that, all-out, 30 years ago: had hundreds of LPs of everybody with a guitar loud enough to blow their Marshall's. The fact is, the metal genre has produced a lot of pyrotechnicians but, really, very few musicians. You can count them all in one hand. Then comes Greg. This guy STANDS OUT. A real natural. Amazing sense of rhythm and a great melodic sensibility.
No wonder: his musical intelligence is routed through (primarily)jazz, fused in a Hendrix reactor, using Funk plutonium. Greg Howe is a FANTASTIC MUSICIAN and really deserves to be noticed more.
I would like to see him sell more, doing what he does best, what is close to his heart, so he would not have to make the kind of "neo-classical" junk he did in _Ascend_ to pay his bills. I cannot imagine a smart, sensitive guy like Greg sincerely going for that crap.Listen to this guy's playing if you want to refine your ears for music in its FONKAY METAL MODE.
If you know, or want to know, the alchemical secret of how music's soul--yes, soul--moves even through the heaviest metal, give this guy a listen."
Greg Howe is deffinitely the best unknown guitarist period!

"I found one of Greg Howe's CD's on accident. It was this CD, Uncertain Terms. I've a pretty good collection of guitar instrumentals. This alblum was the most intense display of guitar playing I've ever heard. Greg excells at every aspect of playing. His use of legato and alternate picking is some of the best I've heard. Listen to track #7, Stringed Sanity, and you will think that Greg Howe is the best guitarist you've ever heard. He can plain out rip!!!!!"
Worth checking out

"Correct me if I'm wrong, but Greg wrote all the material, played all the instruments (except for 1 keyboard solo), and recorded this whole album in his home studio. Keep that in mind when listening/judging this CD. It's not perfect, but definetly worth listening to."
